Posting for hubby who's having severe hip pain. It's been progressing the last few years but it went from 0-60 in about 4 days last month. He's been to the dr. twice and has been prescribed codeine, naproxen and is now on diazepam as well. He has been diagnosed with osteoarthritis but after an exam with the dr. was told it was NOT his hip joint, that it was a nerve being pinched. The pain is extremely uncomfortable and unbearable at different times. We don't know what makes it worse some days. This is my first posting so any info would be welcome. Thanks in advance.View Thread
Thanks. Yes, he's seen our PC doc twice and was given an exam and prescribed drugs which have helped minimally. I looked up symptoms and have now made an appt with an orthopedist who will now take x-rays which the regular doc did not do. He will be seen on Monday. I am so glad we have a PPO, so no referral was needed.
What kind of questions should we ask?
I don't like the way the doc has handled this case and btw: we have been wanting a new pc doc for a while now. Thanks for your responses.View Thread
